Also, congratulations to Christopher, who received his green belt a couple of weeks ago. His classes in Portland are going well.
Craig and Sue both come to the class with experience in the martial arts elsewhere (Sue in aikido, and Craig, being also know as Renshi Craig Sargent, the instructor for Club Naha). As a result, they both blew right through the beginner list for the class and earned their first stripe on the first night. Already working on Yellow Belt.
